The Republic of Awhia is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 284 million Awhians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 28.5%.

The strong Awhian economy, worth 19.3 trillion Awhian Rupiahs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,129 Awhian Rupiahs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party, people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, it's best to decline if Leader offers to buy a round of drinks, and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Awhia's national animal is the Riau Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Awhia is ranked 125,301st in the world and 224th in The Free Nations Region for Most Average, scoring 37.15 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
